Jeffry Mitchell at the Sheldon Museum of Art

Jeffry Mitchell has a solo exhibition at Sheldon Museum of Art from July 22 through November 27, 2016. 

A cast of animal, plant, and human characters make regular appearances in Jeffry Mitchell’s ceramic works. They might be seen as stand-ins for the artist himself, or possibly as representing facets of Mitchell’s experience growing up gay in a working-class Catholic family.

The objects on view in Sheldon’s Focus Gallery come from a larger series by Mitchell of twenty-four works referencing the hours in a single day. The forms resemble those of intimate-scale dioramas or theatrical stages and are also reminiscent of medieval reliquaries.
